VFS: Add a fallthrough flag for marking virtual dentries
Add a DCACHE_FALLTHRU flag to indicate that, in a layered filesystem, this is a virtual dentry that covers another one in a lower layer that should be used instead. This may be recorded on medium if directory integration is stored there. The flag can be set with d_set_fallthru() and tested with d_is_fallthru().
